Located on the southwest side of Maui, the Fairmont Kea Lani Maui is an all-suite and luxury villa oceanfront resort overlooking the turquoise waters of Polo Beach. The Fairmont Kea Lani is a family resort that offers a host of beach and water sports activities including snorkelling, sailing, kayaking, and windsurfing. Besides water sports, the resort is also popular with golfers and tennis enthusiasts.
Visitors here can play on any of the Wailea Golf Club’s three championship golf courses or enjoy a game of tennis at any of the 14 courts the resorts tennis centre offers. When not trying out the resorts sporting facilities, or when you’re tired from too much activity, grown-ups can get some much deserved personal time and rejuvenation with a massage and spa therapies at the Spa Kea Lani.
The resorts accommodation is either suites or villas, so there is no need to squeeze your entire family into a tiny room. The suites at Fairmont Kea Lani are a minimum of 840 square feet offering separate living room, marble bathroom and a separate tub for soaking.
The private twin-level (duplex) villas are located minutes away from the beach and are between 1,800 – 2,200 square feet, providing ample space for large families. These villas are ideal for larger families as they offer a full service kitchen and a private courtyard with a plunge pool and barbeque for grilling out.
Keiki Lani is the hotel’s activity centre for kids. It’s a state licensed facility for children between the ages of 5 and 13, giving parents a break from watching their kids. Here, children can enjoy painting coconuts, building sand castles, exploring the tide pools, learning how to dance the hula, and even making real flower leis. The activity centre can accommodate up to 19 children, so be sure to call ahead and reserve a place for your children.
If you are planning to explore the island of Maui with the kids, we found that you can save a lot of money by taking a package that includes a free rental car. This way, you can explore the island at your will without having to worry about paying any extra money. However we know that hire cars are not everybody’s thing, and so you can also book on pre-arranged guided tours and excursions here.
For a family holiday, Maui is truly a one of a kind destination. There are many different things to do here for everyone in your family, even if they are indeed hard to please.
Once your family experiences Maui and everything there is on offer, you’ll never look at beach holidays the same way again. Maui has that kind of power – especially when it comes to comparing its warm weather, fantastic surf and pleasing people with other holiday destinations the world over.
